<p style="margin: 0 0 1em 0; color: black;">The instance I was speaking of
is Briley Parkway, a ring road through the outer portion of
Nashville,  TN. It is an odd mix, with portions implemented as a
limited-access freeway, and other portions as ordinary city streets. Some
parts were purpise-built, other parts involved connectinng existing
roadways. The northwest quadrant, which passes over the Cumberland River
and then goes through a mostly-undeveloped portion of Davidson County, was
not built until about 20 years after the rest of the roadway opened.</p>
